Personal Space in Retirement-Do You Have Your "Sweet Spot"?
When we chose our current home, it was a joint decision. The investors wanted us to be long term, invested tenants (who would improve the property). So there were an awful lot of criteria in this selection. Although I could live with a step into the house, ...

Is a Tiny House in Your Future?
Like many retirees, I see myself rightsizing one more time. While I love living where I am, I see myself going smaller, flatter and easier.  In a perfect world this is a small first floor condo or an apartment rental close to one or both of my offspring. In...

What I'm Reading.........
Friday I went to see that classic movie of all time, John Wick Chapter 2 . Yes, even though it was almost eighty today here in Denver in February, I spent a few hours in a darkened theater spending my latest gift card in order to watch mayhem, violence, Kea...

Your Never Too Old To March
Just a few days ago (or so it seems), the phone switchboard-if that's what they call it- at the United States Congress crashed. Completely. Even in this age of the most modern technology, it crashed.  Why?  Because millions of people got up in the morning a...

Asking The Readers: Do You Use Costco (or Sams or BJs?)
One of my goals for 2017 is to eat well while cooking less (and hopefully not spending more).  A second goal is to generally streamline my life-in terms of time more than stuff. I want to spend less time on busy work and "to do" items and more time on home ...
